Web Desk: Rolls-Royce, which is known for aeroplane engines and luxury cars, is now planning to build a new machine, cockroaches.
It will be a small robotic cockroach machine that could crawl into tight spots in a car or plane and those areas that need to be repaired.
The cockroaches will be 15mm tall and weigh just a few grams. With the help of a tiny camera this will map out a 3D scan of their surroundings. Rolls-Royce’s technology specialist, James Cell, said, ‘They could go off scuttling around reaching all different parts of the combustion chamber. If we did it conventionally it would take us five hours, with these little robots, who know, it might take five minutes.”
Rolls-Royce is still in prototypes state and aren’t ready to perform repairs.
